Stayed at the Banff Centre for a conference in October 2014. Really nice property more like a hip campus than "hotel". Good location, a short walk in to town. Beautiful views in all directions as Banff is really a national park w/ a town located inside of it.

Attended a conference for 2 nights at the Banff Center - stayed in a room at the Professional Development Center, which is where you check-in. Room was simple, a little tired but functional. The lodgings provided nice bath robes but not basic amenities such as a laundry bag. Walls were particularly thin - heard bathroom flushes, pipe noises and footsteps... More

I went to a conference here, held in the most gorgeous space overlooking the mountains and the town of Banff below. Rooms are rustic but very comfortable. Meeting spaces ultra modern. Great hikes are within walking distance. A beautiful place.

This accommodation was offered for the conference. It was all that we needed. Not fancy but functional. Desk to work at with WiFi. I could walk to my conference and the evening activities were nearby.It is right in the heart of the mountains with views to kill for. You can easily walk downtown or to the river. Pricing is average.... More

This is an absolutely great place to have a conference. The views are great. The staff is very helpful, and the rooms are comfortable. Rooms are in 1 of 2 buildings and there are several other buildings for meetings. The center is on a hill above the town of Banff, but it is a short walk. Woods are nearby for... More

In January 2014 myself and a coworker stayed here with about 60 other new employees from our offices from across the country for a week training program. I ended up with my own room which was amazing! The bed was huge and really comfortable and the room was clean and had no problems at all. The view was beautiful. The... More

Spent 4 days as part of a scientific meeting here. The hotel was very nice. The room was big, comfortable and packed with essentials. The conference center was excellent for any sort of meeting. As part of the meeting, we had a meal plan included. Just have to say that the food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) was spectacular. Better than... More

Beautiful scenery, great accomodations, walking into town, wildlife, what's not to love? Kids came face to face with Elk, bear, moose, deer, ground squirrels and enjoyed their evening walks into town down the mountain trail, passing the river along the way and crossing over the foot bridge!

I booked to stay here during the Alberta Hotel Association conference and brought my wife for her first experience of Alberta and Banff especially. According to the advertising I was going to be staying in 5 star comfort and the pictures looked like it. I booked months ahead. When I got there apparently they over sold the new area and... More

Who knew this arts centre was also a smart hotel? The car parking and arrival was a bit chaotic but, once I'd found reception, all went well. Clean and quiet rooms, and a lovely onsite restaurant. It is a bit far out of town, meaning a cab ride home if drinking, but otherwise a nice escape from the tourist hordes... More
